[ light laughter ] you had -- you had a hair style that i thought -- i was like, "that looks great on hugh grant's face. i'm close enough. i'm gonna give it a shot." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> ooh. that is just -- >> seth: and that's, like, that's, like, pretty -- i'm very ashamed of this one, because this one, you looked great and i did another terrible thth '90s, which is, i grew a terrible thing on my chin.
but that -- [ light laughter ] that's the one i feel ashamed for. >> they're awful. >> we look like two telephones. [ laughter ] >> seth: so, this is based on a true story. >> yes. >> seth: the show. >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: and tell us a little about jeremy thorpe. >> well, it was this massive scandal in britain in the '70s. i remember -- i remember it 'cause i, you know, i was in my teens then. and it was just the biggest political scandal you've ever had. and it resulted in this massive trial. the trial of the century. and it was this guy who was the head of one of our three big parties -- political parties. absolute member of the establishment. he went to eaton, you know, where the royal family would go. went to oxford. beautifully dressed. very smooth. had a family. had a wife. it turned out he put a hit on his ex-gay lover who was stalking him and threatening to reveal him. and it was a really crap hit. it was -- that was the very english bit. it was so, kind of -- [ light laughter ] of work airline piit all wrong and -- and used the wrong gun and shot the dog instead of the man.
[ laughter ] and it -- so, the series is quite dark, but also funny. because it was just so absurd. >> seth: well, i will say the -- when i heard the description of it, well, you know, there's a murder trial and it's a closeted politician. and, i think, in this broad political time we live in, i just assumed it would be so much darker. it is -- it's a weird thing to say, it is a lot of fun as well. which is a nice thing to watch about politics right now. [ light laughter ] >> yeah, that's right. that's right. but they are freaks. i mean, i -- [ light laughter ] i've spent the last six years of ife, lery unlike me, getting heavily involved in politics in britain. thispa all the time and let me say, it's unquestionably true that they are weirdos. that they -- who would go into that job? >> seth: yeah. >> you're not paid very much. and really with that whole thing, it's true. it is show business for the ugly. that they are -- [ laughter ]
narcissistic, ego-maniacal. >> seth: yeah. >> sociopathic. and with absolutely -- and very, very rarely any interest in the country or it's welfare, i find. >> seth: i mean, you -- so, i mean, one of the things, i know you've been advocating for is trying to stop -- it was the hacking scandal with newspapers. >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: and do you at least find that when you talk to politicians about that, that they are listening to you and hearing? or do you feel like it's going in one ear and out the other? >> no, they listen and they are on our side. completely on our side. actually, i've -- i don't think i've ever met one who is really philosophiy may or break our politicians. they choose our prime minister effectively. >> seth: mm-hmm. gulao, when it comes to these on where, actually, newspapers do have to, kind of, print the truth instead of a lie. at the last moment, the government will always back out, because they have to please these big tax-dodging bastards. print the newspaper. [ light laughter ] >> seth: it's very terrifying. and i'm glad we don't have any problems like that over here. [ laughter and applause ] what a life.
>> well, you don't have those problems. >> seth: yeah, you don't have those. it's true. >> no, your press is rather nice. >> seth: so, i read this and was surprised. do you -- you still get a little bit, when you act, you get a little camera shy. is that a fair thing to say? >> well, i have to ward it off all the time. >> seth: right. >> yeah, yeah. absolutely. i think, maybe, everyone does. but it's been a nightmare since i started. i get -- the two worse things i could have would be if that camera is gonna push in slowly on me and i had no words, but i just had to emote. >> seth: yeah. >> and all that would happen is that my jaw would go further and further and further out here. [ light laughter ] i literally can't stop it. and the other nightmare is if they say, "okay, easy shot to do. i will just need you walking down the street towards the camera." nightmare. >> seth: yeah. >> it's a nightmare because, suddenly, you can't walk anymore. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> and i get a very, very bouncy walk. [ laughter ] and then the director, even to this day, has to go, "yeah, yeah. great. it was a little bit bouncy." [ light laughter ] and i can't stop it. >> seth: i know exactly what
you're talking about. it's very strange how certain things, even business with your hands. >> yes. >> seth: you know. and again i -- you're very good at it. i was very bad at it. but i just, i would, they would start doing things. and, like, you know, drink a coffee. and you'd be like -- [ light laughter ] >> i know. why is that -- >> seth: but you just completely forget. >> why is that suddenly so difficult? >> seth: yeah. do you, and you -- but you feel like you were less prepared for film acting than american actors? >> well, yeah. i think -- don't know. i don't know how they're trained in america, but they seem more comfortable on the set. we have to go through terrible convolutions to get -- i mean, anthony hopkins, you can't get a better actor than him. he has this problem, and so, he starts every shooting day by being nice to the camera. you see, he goes up and he strokes and talks to it. [ light laughter ] says, "good morning. how are you?" i think i've seen them having lunch together. [ laughter ] >> seth: that's good. i'm happy. you know, make friends. yeah. >> yeah, exactly. >> seth: in this day and age, even if it's an inanimate object, i'm just happy to see two people get along. [ light laughter ]
>> and i agree with you. >> seth: yeah. >> no one gets along. i have about three fights with strangers a day. i don't know what's happened. [ light laughter ] i blame the internet. >> seth: yeah. no, i think the internet -- as far as fights with strangers, the internet is -- >> it's tormentous. >> seth: yeah, absolutely. >> yeah. >> seth: and you just keep going back to it. i would say it's worse than, at least with the world cup, like, you put your faith in england. it only happens every four years. the internet, you can go to a hundred times a day. >> yeah, exactly. and i -- and i can't stop. and i feel demented. [ light laughter ] i had a terrible fight with a taxi driver phe oer day. i always have a fight with a taxi driver in paris. they're not very nice, if truth be told. [ light laughter ] but this one was bad. i was on my honeymoon. and i said -- i didn't have any cash. i said, "does your little machine for cards work?" and he said -- but then when we got to the place, it didn't work. and so, then he said, "where's the cash?" i said, "i haven't got any." so, there was this terrible fight and he took me to and atm and the atm didn't work and i panicked. and i said to my new wife, "all right. get out of the car. get out of the car. we're just gonna --" [ light laughter ] it was only six euros or something. and the -- the taxi driver said, "what are you doing?" i said, "well, your machine doesn't work, so, we're not paying." at whichnt
just drove off with my wife. [ laughter ] that was a real downer on the honeymoon. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] i mean, going very nice distance then, and then -- >> seth: you know, i have to say, you were very critical of the hit in the movie you were talking about. i feel like your cab driver, you planned it just about as badly. [ light laughter ] you did not think of the next move. >> yeah. my wife is resentful to this day because she says, "why didn't you run after the car?" and i said, "well, it was going at 50 miles an hour. what's the point?" >> seth: yeah. >> but it wasn't a good look that i just sauntered off. >> seth: yeah, well. [ light laughter ] and even worse, it was, like, probably a bouncy saunter. [ laughter ] >> it was a bouncy saunter, very much. >> seth: hey, thank you so much for being here. it's such a pleasure talking to you.

that. i think my appreciation for actors in general, just -- it grew. especially after filming that. >> seth: did you, during this past season after you filmed it, were there nights where even if it was like a back to back, and you played the night before where you're thinking, "this is still not as hard as wearing old man make-up playing in 105 degree heat? >> you're absolutely right, yeah. >> seth: yeah, now all of a sudden, nba seems easy. >> i don't know. when i left that set though, i was so elated.ea the secret is movies are super fun to watch. they're super awful to make.

[ light laughter ] yeah, i was like, yeah, just talking a whole bunch of crap to him. it was fun. >> seth: so, this is about basically a tournament in new york called the -- is it the rucker classic? >> yeah, at rucker park. >> seth: and your dad actually played in it. >> yeah. >> seth: and was an mvp of it. and your dad played at b.u. so he must have thought it was fantastic that you were making a movie about something he actually played in. >> yeah, for sure. for sure. >> seth: and you played when you were -- what age were you when you played in it? >> the first time i was going to
play in it, but it rained that day, it was -- i think i was 17 years old. >> seth: okay. >> and we ended up playing in o. and then, i went to the park again when i think i was like 22. >> seth: gotcha. >> yeah, went out there and just, kind of, started balling a little bit. >> seth: and was it as exciting as it comes across in the film? the actual being there? >> yeah, no. you become enriched with the culture. it's literally just a man on a mic. and he's hyping up everything that's going on out there. you know, embarrassing plays. you know, really good plays. and i think that really just gave me my toughness in the league. to kind of just be an entertainer as well as a pure basketball player, so -- you find that balance. >> seth: you -- in high school, you also did do theater stuff though. is that correct? >> yeah. >> seth: so you did not come into this cold. you did -- >> i was awful, though. >> seth: oh, really? [ light laughter ] >> yeah. i was awful. >> seth: even in high school? >> yeah, no. i was awful, man. >> seth: did other people tell you you were awful or is this self-judgement? >> self-judgement. >> seth: okay, gotcha. >> no, i literally joined the high school musical when i was a senior in high school. wanting to get a day off of
monday. i wanted a three-day weekend. [ light laughter ] so if you acted in it -- you know, everybody remembers how school used to be like that. for the play, play members get a day off on monday.'s le, "what?" >> seth: that's fantastic. >> so i did that. but then, most importantly, to be able to compose myself in situations like this. i wanted to be better at public speaking so i did that just to overcome the fear. >> seth: what was the high school musical that you guys did? >> i think it was the first one. >> seth: oh, you did "high school musical.">> seth: oh, go. >> yeah.
